Beginners Workshops

Join me to learn how to create a beautiful picture of your own using merino wool!

You will be taught how to lay down the merino wool fibres, mix colours and build up the image before wet felting it. You will leave with your own felt picture which you can further enhance at home with stitching if you wish. We take a short break half way through to have some home made cake and coffee.

Felt picture making workshops are run throughout the year at The Barn in Houlton, Rugby (CV23 0AB), between Hilmorton & Crick. This is beautiful brand new community centre with lots of space and light, right next to the lovely Tuning Fork café, perfect for lunch afterwards! There is plenty of free parking.

Workshops are suitable for beginners or those who already have some experience of felting.

Cost: £55 - includes all merino wool, plus tea/coffee and homemade cake.

Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention (max 6 people per class)

On the day, please bring with you an old medium sized towel and a plastic bag to take your damp towel home in.

Advanced Workshops

The Advanced Workshop allows you to build on the Beginners one by introducing new fibres into pictures to add additional texture, colour and sparkle. Working with a picture of your own choice, you will build up the image with merino wool as before, but this time will be able to add further embellishments such as silks, bamboo tops, Angelina fibres and even gold leaf! You are welcome to bring any fibres you have at home and I can advise you on the best way of adding them into your picture. I will also give you a demonstration of how to use free machine embroidery and needle felting on your picture to enhance it even further.

Cost: £55 - includes all merino wool, plus tea/coffee and homemade cake.

Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention (max 6 people per class)

Felting & Flowers

Join me and Sue Ainley from Garden Gate Flowers to learn how to create a beautiful picture of your own using merino wool.

Inspired by and working from real life seasonal flower arrangements, you will be taught how to lay down the merino wool fibres, mix colours by carding and build up the image before wet felting it. You will leave with your own felt picture which you can further enhance at home with stitching if you wish.

‘Felting & Flowers’ is held at Sue’s beautiful new garden studio in Rugby (4 Timber Court, Rugby CV22 5AZ) that looks out over her gorgeous flower filled garden.

Cost: £55 - includes all merino wool, plus tea/coffee and homemade cake.

Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention (max 6 people per class)

'Felting & Flowers' is suitable for beginners or those who already have some experience of felting.


Here's what some previous workshop participants have said:

'If you want a relaxing, rewarding, fulfilling few hours, you can't do better that join Karen on one of her felting courses. I have learnt so much even though I knew nothing about felting beforehand. Karen guides you along without intrusion, towards your final piece of work, which you can hold up and say with pride, "I made that". Oh, and she makes seriously good cakes to have in the break!' Christine, May 2019

'I have just participated in my third workshop - I just love felting, particularly with Karen. It's such a calm, friendly experience every time. Karen explains the process so well and knows just how to help if you need it. The Barn at Houlton is a lovely venue too - did I mention Karen also makes cake for attendees too?I would highly recommend these workshops... I know I'm gushing but I would also say don't stop at one workshop, with felting being such a dynamic process, there's always more to get out of attending.' Niki, April 2019

If you can't make the dates above, why not get a group of your friends together and I can put together a workshop on a date and to suit you! Ideal for birthdays, Hen Nights, Ladies Groups and other celebrations! Email me your requirements studio@karenwyeth.co.uk
